I have read several blogs where people are talking about their iphones touch screens not properly working. I have the same problem. However, NOTHING on my screen will work. I am able to turn the phone off and on and that is ALL. I get the main screen with the lower band saying 'slide to unlock' and I cannot unlock my phone! Help! I cannot do anything with it!
There is one thing you can try, it doesn´t work for me, but you can still try it. You can edit the touch.plist file in /Applications/preferences.app and set the default in 0.0 (the factory setting is 3.5). This setting does the screen more sensible to touch. If you can´t access the Wi-Fi and SSH service you can use iFuntastic (Mac only) for file browsing and editing.

Re: iphone touch screen
Hello, Have you tried resetting the iPhone? Hold the main round button on the front in while also holding the small button on top of the unit in. Hold these both in until you see the screen change or it shuts down completely.

There’s no doubt that
the iPhone has revolutionized the mobile world, reinventing the touch screen
and adding cool widgets in a simple yet slick interface.
However, the iPhone 1.0 also had several annoying and persistent problems which
hampered the experience and caused a lot of headaches to the average user.
I’ve looked into the FixYa database and pulled out the most common iPhone
problems. Steve, I hope you’re reading it this time…
touch screen not working – Over 200 people complained that their touch
screen stopped working. For some it came from nowhere; other had a better
explanation (phone fell into the toilet). The iPhone definitely needs a more reliable
touch screen to keep customers satisfied.
SMSing – Looks
like neither sending SMS to multiple recipients nor forwarding an SMS are easy
tasks.SMS is way more popular than email,
especially in Europe and Asia. Apple needs to fix this feature and improve the user
YouTube for You – iPhone users love multimedia and surf the internet
through their mobile phone 50 times more than the average user. That’s why it
is so important to have the major websites run smoothly on the Apple gadget.
Viewing videos on YouTube turned out to be an impossible mission on the 1st
– Bluetooth is by no means a new technology; how come Apple couldn’t make it work?
issues - I’m not sure if this is the love/hate relationship between Steve
and Bill, but many iPhone customers who use outlook found it extremely
difficult to sync up their outlook to the iPhone. While there’s definitely a
way to do it, a simpler more seamless process is in need.
These are the 5 most popular iPhone 1.0 problems on FixYa. While it seems like the
SMS and Outlook problems have been resolved on the 2.0 version, we might have
to wait and see if Apple will fix the other problems in the future..
Even though the iPhone is a device that is extremely convenient to have, it still can cause frustrations. Specifically, there may be times when the touch screen does not work properly.
There are various problems the iPhone touch screen could encounter. Although there are times when the screen does not work altogether, there are other situations when certain portions of the screen work and others don't. Of course, it is possible that the entire screen works, but is simply slow. Regardless of the exact problem, there are ways to troubleshoot the iPhone to diagnose the real problem.
Place two of your fingers on the iPhone screen close together and enlarge your messages by sliding them away from each other. The farther you slide your fingers apart, the larger the letters/images will be.
You can also do this zoom-in motion while in Safari, Photo, or other apps.
To go back to normal size, just double-tap on the iPhone screen using any of your fingers.

If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and
software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken
proximity sensor or a broken logic board. There is an iphone repair website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.
